It seems that those fans waiting so eagerly for 50 Cent’s fourth solo album were in fact, not so eager.
The album, entitled Before I Self-Destruct recorded disappointing sales that, earlier in the rapper’s career, would have made him imitate the album title and self-destruct out of shame. But, according to mtvnews.com, 50 Cent isn’t too bothered by the meagre release.
The album release was the lowest opening week of his lengthy career, premiering at #5 on 160,000 sales. 50 Cent is blaming some of these lackluster numbers on the fact that the record leaked weeks before the big debut, instigating an earlier-than-anticipated release date by the record company.
Boombox.com published the following sentiment that 50 Cent told DJ Green Lantern’s Siruis Satellite radio show in an interview:
Are the Pussycat Dolls done for good? Did anyone know that they were actually still together?

The paper also said that a source told them that “it is war” between the two sides. “They have broken up for good. None of the other girls are speaking to Nicole, who they believe took the limelight, then went off to do her own thing.”
Remember back to six months ago, when Rihanna joined the ranks of those who have had nude pictures leaked to the media? The nude cellphone shots of Rihanna were leaked online, but it seems that the Barbadian Beauty has gotten a free pass with this scandal.
Rihanna has finally issued a statement concerning the nude shots sent to her then-boyfriend, Chris Brown. According to dose.ca, in an interview with the radio station Hot 97 earlier in the week, she described the incident as one that was a humiliating encounter with the media.
“It was humiliating and embarrassing,” she continued. “Especially my mom having to see that. It was two days before Mother’s Day, so I was nervous.” She went to say that she felt “like my whole privacy was taken before that and then, when that came out, I thought, ‘Oh great, so now there’s nothing they don’t know about me and my private life.”
